The problem was brought up on the Google Voice forums, but I never had issues until I manually updated. I'd still do it again, tethering/hotspots are good times, and I have one app updated so far that let's me move it to the SD card. Only 30 or so to go!

    Did you ever resolve the "unknown Caller" issue

    Looking for feedback from those that manually updated to 2.2 over two weeks ago. A lot of people seemed to do OK, some did not. I am stock N1 bought from Google Store running ERE27 on CBW. Had to select TMO 3G as carrier choice when I bought. I downloaded the update and saved to SD Card as "update" no .zip, has "passion" in link name. Other than that forgot where I downloaded from. Have done nothing since then and like a lot of others tired of waiting and know from Google employee posts, I will still get the OTA when it comes out.

    I would like to know from any of you if you would do it again, since I read that some had problems only after several days after the update. Am aware of the bugs even though most, like I said, posted no problems at all.

    Part of me says wait, it can't be that much longer. The other part says go ahead, you can always factory reset and reload. I use MyBackUp for apps and data.

    Looking to see what percentage of responses are positive.


    Any advice?




    Ken
    Well I can tell you that a factory reset won't remove the 2.2 cause I tried it already after noticing some apps missing that i paid for, but I spoke wit a nexus care specialist and she informed me that those who manually downloaded froyo will still get the OTA update because the downloadable version is just a test run.

    That's wierd. I had a link to the xda deveolper forum with downgrade instructions. It actually took you back before 2.1, then you had to uograde to 2.1. I thought it was a Fact Reset. Lost link.

    Heck yes! I love Froyo... battery life has increased by 300% and I'm not exaggerating. So many new features almost make Froyo perfect... I can see why some people won't even consider rooting.

    ONLY thing holding me back right now is a few apps, also I don't like Froyo's implementation of Apps2SD.

    I have been swapping back and forth between Froyo and CyanogenMod 5.0.8 test 5 (both use the Froyo radio now)... it's a tough call. I'd recommend you try them both :D
    I want to root after 2.2 OTA. But, I understand the current ROM's like CM don't support Flash. That is one of the main reasons I got the N1. Was interested in the ClockworkMod ROM. Seemed easy to do. Don't know if as good as CM. I guess both allow full image backups of phone.

    I would absolutly do it again. I mean FROYO 2.2 might be the best Update to ever come to a smart phone.

    I mean flash is wonderful and works great, The tethering works like a gem, the new camera changes are perfect....I am absolutly blown away by my phone and I've had it for almost three months now!!

    I just wish everyone knew about this phone and all of its capabilities, and was more accessible to purchase because to me its ahead of the field. Right now it feels like I'm part of a small but yet very powerful Cult LOL

    TerribleT67,

    Did you lose anything from the manual update?

    I'd update again. Minus two app problems the 2.2 upgrade was well worth it. Speed, Flash, tethering, wifi hotspot, navigation upgrades, and all the other upgrades were well worth the possible risk. :nexusx:

    I have folders on my Homescreens with bookmarks and contacts in the different folders. Will I lose them?

    Yes and no..you will lose them on the update, but you won't 'lose' them since they are restorable...IOW back them up.

    edit: also don't be too surprised if some of your links need to be recreated, an OS update is a rather major change, so test them after you restore, to ensure they still work.

    How do I back up folders? Is this done when I use MyBackUp, or am I just going to have to recreate them. Bookmarks can be lost too? I know when I upgraded OS on my BB8900 everything stayed the same.

    If MyBackUp can back it up, you should be golden. I say be prepared, primarily because I wasn't...my HelixLauncher went all wonky...and you know how little you can do with a wonky launcher. I went with LauncherPro, which happily turned into an upgrade of Helix, so I got more than just an OS upgrade. I think most things will work normally, but there's always a chance links/widgets/shortcuts,etc. may need a bit of maintenance after an OS update.
